Chaz Bono

Gender Reassignment Complete

3/29/2010 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a copy of court documents in which a doctor states he performed "an irreversible surgical procedure for the purpose of altering Chaz Bono's sex characteristics from female to male."

Chaz Bono

According to the docs, on September 23, 2009, Dr. Michael Brownstein performed the operation.

The specifics of the procedure are not outlined, but the Dr. says, "Chaz Bono has completed his gender reassignment surgery."

In the "Petition for Change of Name and Gender" filed with the court, Chaz asks for a legal change from female to male.

Now all Chaz needs to do is change the DNA and Chaz will be a real boy.


...Seriously, glad that Chaz is content with himself : )

THIS IS THE STORY OF A WOMAN (CHER) SO OBSESSED WITH HER OWN BEAUTY AND BODY, THAT HER LITTLE GIRL COULD NOT COMPETE. IT IS A TESTAMENT TO A SELFISH, SELF OBSESSED MOTHER.

This goes to show you, just because you are beautiful and talented doesn't mean you won't produce an ugly retard.

I step back from all of this wall-to-wall reporting on the matter and I think to myself "who is Chaz Bono??" Oh yeah, she's an excuse to make a big deal out of LGBT rights. The people who already care cheer and the people who don't, don't.

You can change your physical characteristics, but you will never change your DNA. I think most men will agree that they are more than a few mannerisms and a penis.

If you went to a doctor and said "I'm a dog trapped in a human's body" they'd lock you up, but go to a doctor and say "I'm a man trapped in a woman's body" and they give you surgery so your body matches your delusions. This is mental illness nothing more. She needed a psychiatrist not a sex reassignment surgeon.

And on an ending note 1 in 12 transgendered will end up murdered over it- so really the problem is not with us- it's with you who decided to hate us over what is our own private business-not yours.

Well then, if it's your own private business, keep your business in the closet where it belongs!! Nobody wants to see this heavy breathing, overwieght tranny or be anywhere near it. How are we supposed to explain this to children? "Oh honey, don't be scared, the zoo/local mental facilities opens it's doors and lets the animals roam the streets every once in a while". Until you are happy within, no matter how many procedures you have, you will never be happy! If you have to keep changing or reinventing yourself...something is not right! This is the most digusting creature walking the face of the earth!!

There is nothing that can be done to a human being to change their sex. You can cut things off, stuff things in, take pills, shave, etc but a man will always be a man and a woman will always be a woman. Chastity Bono is a woman, always has been, always will be. Any court rulings should be thrown out. Unreal, she needs to go away.

Its one thing to want to be a man, but it is another to want to be a stereotype cartoon character of a man, with the beer belly and the flannel shirts and over the top farting scratching get er done type of image. She is mentally ill and is obviously over doing it.

Someone said before: It's not about about you. It is not about what you think of him, it is how he FEELS, as a human being. What difference to you is it that he used to be female? How does it affect, truly, your life? It does not.

I know that you firmly believe what you say, but understand that you have no reason to hate or to encourage others to hate him for this. Keep it to yourself, will you?

Wow, the hate here is ridiculous.
Transsexuals are killed and beaten every day because a bunch of people think that someone elses sex has something to do with them. It's personal and it's their choice. If you don't like it walk away but don't be violent or hateful.

If someone is unhappy with their gender and changes it why do you think you have the right to judge the person or their family?

I've actually met Chaz, he's a nice guy and I am glad for him that he was able to change his physical appearance to what he feels himself to be inside. I wish the best to him and his family.
